30% Off Ontario Tuition Grant

The 30% Off Ontario Tuition Grant was introduced to make education more accessible and affordable for full-time undergraduate students.

The amount of the Ontario Tuition Grant may be up to $890 per semester, for a maximum of two semesters per year ($1,780/year) for university students enrolled in degree programs.

You may receive the grant for your first four years of undergraduate, post secondary education. Students with a permanent disability may receive the grant for up to six years.

Who is eligible for the 30% Off Ontario Tuition Grant?

  4. your parents' gross income is $160,000 or less
  5. you’re a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident or a protected person
